Have you ever thought about your dog’s ecological foot -- er… pawprint? Your neighbors and the planet will thank you if you make sure to always scoop your pet’s poop when you take him or her on walks. Your pooch can impress the neighborhood dogs with a hemp leash and collar from Rawganique.com. And comfy pet beds with no harmful chemical additives can be found now at many pet retailers or online. (Of course, Fifi or Fido would likely be just as happy sleeping on a folded quilt or blanket.)
Most importantly, make sure your dog eats healthy. Opt for organic brands such as Newman's Own or Nature's Variety. Or, once a week, make large batches of rice, steamed veggies and meat and dish out in appropriate serving sizes at mealtime. Just check with the vet to make sure your pet is getting all the nutrients she needs from the homemade food.
